I enjoyed this tour. The guide is so kind and have good knowledge of Kyoto history . And we can visit tofu(soybean curd ) shop and picture card shop . This is a good opportunity to know local people life. 紙芝居で東本願寺の説明を受けた後、実際に東本願寺をガイドしていただきました。ガイドの方は知識が豊富で、どんな質問にも答えてくれました。 東本願寺の後は京都の街並みを散策しながら、豆腐屋や掛け軸屋などにも訪問しました。京都人の何気ない日常を体験できます。

Shimogyo-ku is centered around the busy train hub,
Kyoto Station. A nexus for commerce, shopping, dining,
and hotels, the Shimogyo-ku area is infused with
tourists and local business travelers, making it a
competitive location for ever-new commercial
structures. The shops and cafes here are chic and
trendy, as a result, with many recognizable chains.
Commuters flood the Shimogyo-ku area twice a day, and
